The first thing that resonates in anyone's mind when you mention Bangkok are the infamous tuk-tuks. So thanks to this tour, that's exactly how you'd be exploring this vibrant city. Do be warned that you could be lured into a tuk-tuk scam, so it's best to stick to well-known tours and operators like this one.
From your pick-up location your tour guide and you will be whizzing in this airy ride. Your first stop is the Phra Sumeru Fortress and then the Thammasart University, where you’ll learn a bit about the history behind this area.
This next stop is for the superstitious. The Amulet Market is where you'll find locals selling various types of traditional Thai amulets, charms, and medicines as your tour guide gives you the lowdown about the significance of these items and what part the play in Thai culture. Knick-knacks, spooky bits and bobs have all kinds of different meanings in Thailand, from good luck to warding off evil.
Moving on, your tuk-tuk journeys to the birthplace of Thai massage and medicines - Wat Po. And later to Phahurat Market, in the heart of Bangkok's Little India. Take your pick from all kinds of fabrics, cloths, ornaments, and accessories alongside Indian snacks.
But don't spend your last buck here as bargains are available at Khlong Thom quarter, to a market known as the ""thieves market."" For what it matters, this place got its name from selling stolen goods in the past but is no longer the case today.
And finally, with all the shopping, your last stop is Wat Saket, another temple that lies at the foot of the Golden Mount. By the way, you've got to climb 318 steps but be assured it's worth it after you soak in the 360 degree scenery surrounding old Rattanakosin Island.
